Default BFG Free upgrade from AGP to PCIE

http://neoseeker.com/news/9281-bfg-o...for-customers/

If you have a qualifying AGP bfg card you can get a 9500/9600gt for free or a 9600/9800 for $50 depending on the model you have. Seems like a pretty good deal to me. Maybe ill find some of these cards on craigslist or something for $50 and get a 9800 for $100 :D

It's not that they make them US only, it's usually that our consumer control is stricter here and some silly law somewhere prohibits it.
